Princess Margaret Cancer Centre Wig Salon and Accessories Boutique

Today I paid a visit to the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre Wig Salon and Accessories Boutique. It is the only place in Toronto that I found that accepts gently used wigs to be reconditioned for patients that may need one. I also discovered they will take head coverings and scarves too. They have a Look Good Feel Better program out of the space as well as sell hats and accessories with proceeds going back to the hospital. I was lucky to meet the lovely team including Wig Specialist Laurie as well as a fourteen year volunteer giving back. Such a special place to help patients. Unfortunately not everyone is lucky to have work and/or private insurance or can afford to cover the cost of a wig. For those patients PMH runs a service outside of the PMH Lodge on Jarvis on Wednesday mornings to help those who cannot afford a wig and do not have insurance. All wigs have been donated like the one I dropped off today. Appointments must be made in advance by phoning Laurie at 416-413-7412. Losing your hair can be traumatizing so if you have gently used wigs, head coverings or scarves, definitely consider donating them to PMH and help patients in need.
